ATHENA - Weston-McEwen's Tiffany Cain scored a game-high 16 points here Friday in non-conference girls basketball action.

"Tiffany is our only senior," W-M coach Amber Doremus said. "She took control, went to the basket and took care of business."

It wasn't enough as Umatilla jumped to an 11-0 lead after one, and the TigerScots could not recover. The Vikings went on to post a 50-31 win.

"We had the first quarter jitters," Doremus said. "We had a problem taking care of the ball."

The TigerScots fought back to outscore the Vikings 11-10 in the third period, but never overcame the 11-0 start.

"We made good adjustments at halftime," Doremus said. "We wanted to shoot the ball, rebound the ball and put shots back up."

The TigerScots hit 10-of-28 from the field in the second half, and limited Umatilla to only four second-half offensive rebounds.

MaKayla Christopher led the TigerScot rebounders with six and chipped in three points.

Naomi Castanon led the Vikings with a double-double, scoring 15 points and grabbing a game-high 10 rebounds.

The TigerScots travel to Umatilla for the Columbia River Clash Thursday and open against Helix at 3 p.m.
